Importance of Kids’ Dental Care

The dental care needs of children are a lot different from those of adults. The oral health of children can affect their growth and development. It is important for children to be free from dental problems in order to create a good foundation for proper eruption of permanent teeth.

Preventive dentistry

Periodic visits to our DQS Dental office can help prevent dental problems in children. We use dental sealants to protect the biting surface of children. Fluoride can act as a protective layer over the teeth surface. Other preventive dental procedures include use of space maintainers when a tooth has fallen out and use of dental crowns to protect damaged tooth.

Treating the infection

When a tooth is infected, our dentist removes the decayed portion of the tooth and restores it with appropriate dental materials. The baby teeth of children need to be protected since the teeth are crucial for healthy growth of the child and proper eruption of permanent teeth.
